Hands On With New Xbox 360 Controller


N-Control has just released an updated version of their Avenger, an insane-looking Xbox 360 controller rig. It’s supposed to make gaming a lot easier thanks to its special button extenders. After looking at it for a few moments, you start to realize that this might be a good idea, especially if you play for hours on your Xbox 360. It came out with a new style, a new design and innovative features to the Xbox 360 family console. Lets get down to a quick review of this beautiful system, so we can explorer some of its amazing features.

Apart from the new color scheme, the aforementioned rotaing digital pad is the only real innovation. According to the Xbox product site, it “transforms from a plus to a dis… the new Wireless Controller provides ultimate precision, accuracy, and control.” The D-Pad can be used in two ways. For cardinal directions, gamers use the plus movements: up, down, left, right. For sweeping movements, gamers can use the pad in a “disc” format.

The Xbox 360 S came out with other than a beautiful new exterior, a nice interior as well. The USB slots were extended, now you can count to have 5 amazing USB slots for all your needs, for controllers, battery charging and everything else. Another great exceptional feature was the Wireless Network CARD, which instead of been similar to the same PlayStation 3 wireless network card and its Xbox 360 Wireless network card with a WiFi 802.11a/b/g it came out with a WiFi 802.11b/g/n that “/n” in the end represent all the difference, it is way faster and more stable. Xbox Live players can now count with a supper, way more smooth connection speed, allowing their Xbox live experience to take a different route, this was sure a great change for the games worldwide, it is way faster than PlayStation’s 3 WiFi adapter. Another feature included was an auxiliary port, which helps for extra connections when needed.

We knew about the transforming d-pad, but did you know the analog sticks have changed? They tilt the same, but the shape of the depression on top of them has been tweaked. The old raised bits are gone and the center has a deeper depression. I’m not sure what the consequences will be of the small change, but the new stick did feel comfortable under my thumb. Here is a comparison of the new controller and an older black one, set up so you can compare the right analog stick of the new one to the left of the old one.

While the new controller is getting pretty good marks across the board – it’s worth nothing that we find the recoloring of the A, B, X and Y buttons odd. While the off-grey looks awesome – it’s weird from them to abandon the familiar colors, especially since games often reference them on screen with just the colors. At any rate, the new controller is coming this November for $ 64 in the US and in 2011 for Europe and the rest of the world.
